The Boston Celtics' season hasn't gone as expected.
They are currently seventh in the Eastern Conference with a 9-9 overall record. The majority of the Celtics' struggles this season have come because of a lack of production from their bench, specifically at the guard position.
With Ray Allen missing the past three games, and Rajon Rondo possibly being sidelined until the All-Star break, the Celtics need to find a way to increase the production they currently have off the bench at guard position, which is something that Allen Iverson could undoubtedly do.
Even better yet, it appears that Iverson is interested in becoming a member of the Boston Celtics. Adding Iverson to an injured Celtics roster would help the C's buy some time for guys like Rondo and Allen to get back to 100 percent.
Adding Iverson to an aging Celtics roster might not seem like the smartest move, but it would undoubtedly add an increased level of depth to a thin Celtics bench. For the veteran minimum of around $1.4 million, the Celtics would be foolish to not add Iverson.
He's the perfect low cost, high reward kind of risk that the Celtics should take, because if it works out, Danny Ainge will look like a genius. And if doesn't work out, no one will remember the failed Iverson experiment.
